April 20, 2013


WOOLWICH TWP. — Philadelphia Phillie Jimmy Rollins scored a homerun today in Gloucester County. But this one is for the pet owners.

Saint Francis Veterinary Center, an award-winning, American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA)-accredited veterinary practice, officially opened the Rollins Center for Animal Rehabilitation, a state-of-the-art rehabilitation and pain management center for animals.

The Rollins Center represents an exciting partnership between Saint Francis Veterinary Center, Jimmy Rollins of the Philadelphia Phillies and his wife, Johari.

A Grand Opening celebration begins at 10 a.m. and is open to the public, with events including autographs, the Phillie Phanatic, face painting, an arcade and more. A full agenda of activities can be found online at

A press conference and speaking program will begin at 12:20 p.m. and include: Jimmy & Johari Rollins; David Montgomery, Owner of the Phillies; Congressman Pat Meehan; Congressman Chaka Fattah; Dr. Mark Magazu, Chairman of Saint Francis Veterinary Center; Mayor Sam Maccarone of Woolwich Township; and Dr. James Lavender, Superintendent of Kingsway Regional High School.

The Rollins Center for Animal Rehabilitation will offer to animals many of the same cutting edge modalities often used by humans, including those utilized by professional athletes like Jimmy Rollins:

• Pre and Post-Operative Therapy

• Arthritis & chronic pain management

• Orthopedic rehabilitation

• Neurologic rehabilitation

• Orthotics, prosthetics and assistive devices

• Fitness and conditioning

• Hydrotherapy Thermotherapy

• Therapeutic laser

• Therapeutic ultrasound

• Neuromuscular electrical stimulation

• Range of motion therapies

• Therapeutic exercises

• Rapid Release Therapy

• Massage therapy

• Digital Lameness Scoring/Gait Analysis

The Rollins Center will assist patients with post-surgical recovery; prevention of further injury; recovery and healing of muscle strains, ligament ruptures, joint sprains and bone fractures; assuaging of patient anxiety or stress; reduction of muscle tightness or spasm; management of chronic conditions including arthritis and degenerative disease; promotion of flexibility and range of motion; weight management; and other beneficial therapies.

“Johari and I are personally excited to partner with Saint Francis Veterinary Center of South Jersey,” commented Jimmy Rollins. “We have trusted their doctors with the health of our dogs for some time, and it is a special feeling to know that with the opening of The Rollins Center, we’ll play a role in enhancing the lives of animals in need while setting the standard for animal physical welfare across the country.”

“On behalf of the extraordinary medical team of Saint Francis, it is a true honor to partner with Johari and Jimmy Rollins on this remarkable endeavor,” said Dr. Mark Magazu, chairman of Saint Francis Veterinary Center of South Jersey.

“The Rollins Center will offer animals struggling with physical challenges a state of the art rehabilitation center very similar to what we humans utilize in our own lives, including the kinds of cutting edge therapies that Jimmy utilizes in his career with our hometown Philadelphia Phillies.”

The Rollins Center will be led by two veterinarians trained at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Caroline K. Garzotto, VMD, DACVS, CCRT; and Dr. Mark Newkirk, BS, MS, VMD. Dr. Garzotto is an Adjunct Professor of Surgery at the University and is a Board Certified surgeon as well as a certified practitioner of canine rehabilitation.
